The two primary choices for gold bar buyers are minted ingots and cast bars. Generally speaking, minted ingots come with higher premiums due to the more extensive production process. A minted ingot starts out as a long cast bar that is then fed into stamping presses that cut out precise sizes and shapes. From there, the ingot is stamped by computer-controlled presses with a design element, markings of the weight, purity, and metal content, and even a serial number. These inscriptions are put on both sides.
Cast gold bars, including these loaf-style cast gold bars, have a much simpler production process. The gold is first melted down and then poured into prefabricated molds. The bars are left in the molds to cool, with inscriptions stamped into just one side of the bars at some point near the end of the cooling process. From there, the gold bars are considered complete and ready for distribution.
The obverse field of 5 oz Gold Engelhard Bars features the only design elements you will find on the bars. The Engelhard company logo features along the bottom of the horizontal field of the bar. It consists of a rectangle with “Engelhard” stamped within. Above it are the markings are the weight and purity of the bar.
On the reverse side of the 5 oz Gold Engelhard Bar, you will find a blank surface. While there are no purposeful inscriptions on this side, it is possible to notice some natural striations, textures, and other visual elements. These are a result of the gold being poured into the mold and its subsequent settling during the cooling process.
